For weeks, rumors have been swirling that Madonna would be gracing Louis Vuitton’s new ad campaign. The French fashion house has remained mum — until now. Her Madgesty will indeed appear in the Spring/Summer ’09 ad campaign that will hit magazines in February 2009. The star is shot by legendary photographer Steven Meisel (who infamously collaborated with Madonna on her Sex book) in a sultry French cafe setting. When it came to choosing the new face, designer Marc Jacobs wouldn’t have it any other way. “I wanted the campaign to be very bold, very sensual and very atmospheric. To carry off all these references and all its sophistication, we needed the ultimate performer — and for me, that is Madonna,” says Jacobs. We couldn’t agree more. Tell us: What do you think of Madonna’s Louis Vuitton ads? Do you think she was the best choice?

As a 53 year old woman, I can say that if you younger folks are lucky, you, too, will be 50 one day! Madonna looks beautiful in these pictures!

At 50 she looks better than many women in her 20’S AND 30’s. I saw her on stage in Vegas a month ago, and she looks amazing, sounds amazing, and has more energy than the energizer bunny. I’m 20 yrs younger than her, but I think she rocks, her music is awesome. She is a woman with class and attitude, and that’s what makes her unique. She has no problem expressing herself. I love her. She’s the best!

Please do you know how many times this picture must have been retouched just to make her look half decent. I love her music but it’s time to retire those tights and cover up.

I think Madonna is a phenomenal artist able to transform herself each decade and keep current, but judging from those poses, I think the ad campaign tag line should be “You don’t have to be a lady, to carry Luis Vuitton.”

Old or ageless, trashy or tasteful, Madonna is overexposed.

I think that Madonna is a very poor choice for LV’s new campaign. I do not find Madonna synonymous with “very bold, very sensual and very atmospheric,” which apparently is LV’s positioning strategy for this campaign. The brand is oozes class, sophistication, and style, characteristics which the brand image of today’s Madonna fails to portray. LV should focus on more youthful spokespeople to project their image to consumers. Using Madonna reflects poorly on the brand. Tsk tsk to the fashion house… where is my Coach bag?
